Jared Kushner expresses doubt that Palestinians can self-govern

White House senior adviser says he hopes Palestinians will become ‘capable of governing’ and denies Trump is racist in rare interview

<snip>

"White House senior adviser Jared Kushner has expressed uncertainty over the ability of Palestinians to self-govern, in a rare television interview broadcast on Sunday night.

Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and an architect of the White House’s yet-to-be-released Middle East peace plan, told the “Axios on HBO” television program it would be a “high bar” when asked if the Palestinians could expect freedom from Israeli military and government interference.

The Palestinian leadership has boycotted a diplomatic effort that Trump has hailed as the “deal of the century.” Although Kushner has been drafting the plan for two years under a veil of secrecy, it is seen by Palestinian and some Arab officials as tilting heavily in Israel’s favour and denying them a state of their own.

Kushner again avoided saying explicitly whether the plan would include a two-state solution, the bedrock of US policy for decades, calling for a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with its capital in East Jerusalem."

4. Unforunately, this untrained princeling makes what passes for policy.

He's the tot with the loaded gun. It matters that he can't see past his own personal enrichment.

5. I'll get banned if I were to say what I think of Kushner

 

I was banned somewhere else for saying that I prayed for Trump chocking on a Big Mac.

The I/P conflict is tragic and complicated enough without having Prince Jared and his father-in-law inserting themselves on this issue and abandoning the 2-state solution.

Israelis, Palestinians, and Americans deserve better than a cockamamie plan cooked up by Kushner.
